Yes, I’m aware it is Saturday and nobody is home in Bloggerville on the weekends. But rather than wait until Monday when a few readers trickle in from work, Â I thought it best to follow up in a more timely manner on a recent Fragments disclosure.
You may recall that I bragged the other day how industrious our pup Gandy was in the household task of wood gathering. Her sense of duty and her commitment to the task at hand are admirable.
But be aware that there is more to her than mere brawn and work ethic. She is also a patron of the arts.
In fact, I was pleased to note just yesterday that Gandy’s Workshop is now Gandy’s Studio. She has selected her first sculpture, an elegant and classic plaster nose and mustache (“Der Snozz mit Wheesqers” as it is known in its native Bavaria)Â from the late AlterNative period, I believe.
I did not witness this selection process from the place in the yard where this sculpture fell off its nail on the poplar tree, but given the heft of this objet d’art, I have to think that her prior work in wood has given her talents she can now adapt to new media.
So far, only one piece has been added to what will ultimately become a renowned collection of outdoor art. Charlie Brouwer, beware.
I predict this oeuvre will soon rival Troika’s trove of treasures. As a matter of fact…
Soon to be announced, a name change for a familiar Floyd County arts event:
“Sixteen Hands. And Four Paws.”
